Wireframe material. Can it be done?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Is it possible to create a wireframe material? I have a box with several objects in it. I would like to animate the box as it slowly turns to wireframe, revealing the objects inside, which are not in wireframe.

  • Atom Array! I should have thought of that. I see you animated the alpha channel form the color change. How did you animate it? Can you give me a small hint?

  • I understand how you did it. When I tried it on a cube, it worked but the transition was independent on each of the cube's sides. In your example, it transitioned over the entire object, from left to right. How did you do that?

    When you click on material on atom array, projection is changed to flat and with texture tool bit enlarged and adjusted position

    ...and animated is gradient (position of nodes) . In R21 is needed to select both together, create key, move slider on timeline to last key, in gradient move both nodes together, move to the end position and make a key. If will be selected just single color node and created key clicking on gradient "keyframe-ring", key will not be saved for both color nodes just for selected one...
